It takes the whole RCOT membership and many other contributors to plan and execute a successful car show.  Although terrific groundwork work is in place from the prior 10 shows, there are always new issues and we sure have had these this year, and the chore of renewing and finding new sponsors, selling tickets, marketing and staffing the event to name a few.  Getting the site prepared, layout for the classic cars and parking areas, erection of all the tents, signage, recruitment of food court, merchandise and promotional vendors, consume many hours of planning and work on site.  And then the big DAY, and the end, except clean up on the following Sunday, of a successful RCOT lead and executed community event benefiting Make Way for Books, Caregiver Training Institute, GAP Ministries, JTED and YWCA and 10 to 15 other nonprofits who receive the remaining net proceeds of the car show; the reason YOU, the Members of the RCOT spent so much of YOUR time and effort.  But Wait—this is only possible if you have sold tickets and volunteered and sought others to volunteer, then we can celebrate a success.
